, exactly what they showed really for the past month. we're not seeing ohio polls with the romney lead. yesterday it was suggested that's why the governor is headed to pennsylvania, he's running out of options. off the record, does anyone in the romney campaign say the same thing? >> reporter: what they've been saying in this campaign in the final stretch here when it comes to ohio is that this race is going to come down to independents. if you look at the independent numbers in that latest cnn/orc poll for ohio, the president has a two point deficit. mitt romney is leading by two points. i don't think that's close enough for either campaign to feel confident quite honestly. i think that's why you're seeing this event behind me right now. just getting to swing states. we have roughly 100 governors, senators, other gop heavy hitters taking the stage behind me, rudy giuliani was out here earlier, bob mcdonnell, governor of virginia. kid rock kicked off this event earlier. not sure if we will see a gop version of "we are the world" but there is representation from just about every battleg
